Armfalcon.com, JAKARTA — Deputy President KH Ma’ruf Amin asked QRIS owners to strengthen the monitoring system for both the placement and security of QRIS mosques after fraudulent acts involving pasting QR codes or fake QRIS mosque charity boxes. Several mosques that have experienced this incident include the Istiqlal Mosque and the Nurul Iman Mosque Blok M Square.
“The first is of course the owner of the QRIS, the mosques, he must continue to control so that no one abuses it,” said Kiai Ma’ruf quoted from his written statement, Wednesday (12/4/2023).
Kiai Ma’ruf also said that apart from being the QRIS owner, on a broader scale, the higher authorities must also have a monitoring system for all registered QRIS. “From the parties that have this authority (the Financial Services Authority and Bank Indonesia), we need to create safeguards,” said Kiai Ma’ruf.
This is because the findings of the QRIS fraud case at the mosque’s charity box show that supervision and security are still lacking. “If it’s like now it means right less secure, even though we want to provide better service. This means that service innovation is easier, better, but there is a risk that it can actually be replaced by [oknum],” he said.
The chairman of the Advisory Council of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) also emphasized that a good control and security system is needed for circulating QRIS. One of them is for a QR code that transports funds for the benefit of the people.
“Therefore, the authorities must create (safeguards) that will endanger QRIS owners,” he said.
